Observer
NameMark K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis sighting was by sheer chance I was just sitting down with two other work colleagues and not really paying attention at first I thought it was a plane but it was really bright and moving too fast. I am glad that I pointed it out to my friends as one of them had never seen a meteor before.
